We just moved into this area and I have a teenage girl who's friends talk about smoking Hookah. I need some insight on this. She says it is legal and is just flavored tobacco? Help

Somethig can not be illegal if there is no law against it. It is only illegal to use or possess if you are using it for illegal purposes.

If you don't know what it is the quickest way to describe it is to look at the Disney movie Alice in Wonderland. The catapillar is smoking one. If they are honestly smoking pipe/flavored tobacco out of it the your only concern should be do you want your child smoking at all. If they are smoking pot out of it then you might not want them to join in unless your are ok with it. Bit all on all there is nothing super dangerous with smoking from a hooka. In fact there any many bars in bigger cities that are set up just for them, sorta like cigar bars.

I mean the cops can confinscate it and keep it, but the person selling it can't be charged as of yet. It comes in packs and its actually not tobacco at all its potpouri its used in place of pot look it up it's one of it's names are mr. Nice

Another attempt at getting high by the young people today and is being seen here at our local hospital is the huffing in small plastic bags of human feces. When I first heard this I thought that it was a joke but a Dr. friend of mine says it's true, this is just unbelievable and not illegal but extremely hazardous.

Hookah has been around for ages, it's a water pipe. It's not illegal to smoke tobacco thru it but if you use illegal drugs then the possesion of these drugs is what makes it illegal to smoke. Best known for smoking pot.

But again, they can only take it if you are doing something illegal with it. As this potpourri that is being used like a drug, that is something to consider for the OP but still it is 100% possible that these kids are not lying and it is only tobacco they are using in it.

if it is illegal then why is there hookah bars in Lexington near the university. My son attends there and he goes to the hookah bar to listen to music and he said that it is flavored tobacco.

Ok, let's get this straight. Hookahs (water bongs with hoses) are NOT illegal. Smoking pot in them IS illegal. The stuff called hookah (spice, k, synthetic cannabis, potpourri ) is illegal in some states. The problem is that people keep changing the chemical composition of it by some small degree so that it is essentially a new 'drug'. Then, it becomes totally legal again. Bad stuff

Studies show that the "War on Drugs" hasn't helped at all. The crime rates have stayed the same for years. Politicians love to use the "war on drugs" to get attention and push people's buttons.

That's an old one. I did that years ago and Im no kid. I've seen all kinds of things turned into bongs. Lets see pop can, any kind of bottle, an apple pretty much anything you can have 2 holes in. One for pot and another one to smoke out of. Kids will think of anything trust me. But I gave it up god its been about 5 years ago if not longer and I didn't really smoke just had a lot of friends who did.

Ummm....you guys don't know what bongs are, do you? What you are describing are bowls. Bongs require water.
